    The American Golden Plover was again to be found on the fields behind the houses at North Boisdale in amongst some 300 Golden Plovers. The 2 Little Egrets were again both in evidence with one on Loch Hallan, the other at Loch na Liana Moire, Daliburgh. A Coot and a female Gadwall were on Eilean nan Ramh, Daliburgh and a new Chiffchaff was trapped and ringed here in Askernish

    A ♂ Siskin was still present at Carinish, North Uist today and two Snow Buntings flew over towards Baleshare.

    In the Rubh' Arnal area, North Uist the five pale-bellied Brent Geese were still present and there was a Glaucous Gull loafing with other gulls over towards Balemore.
    And at Loch Sandary, North Uist a 3CY Iceland Gull.

    Outer Hebrides Birds is a small group of enthusiastic birders here in the islands. We enjoy birding on our local patch as much as we do looking for that elusive rarity. Many of us participate in the regular and one-off local BTO surveys.

    Our aim is to enhance the recording of birds in the county and bring together people with a shared interest in birds and birding here in the Outer Hebrides.

    Please feel free to sign up to our website and post your own sightings and photos. You can also ask questions and join in the discussions.

    Alternatively you may email your sightings and photos to us sightings@outerhebridesbirds.org.uk or telephone us on 01851 741250 and leave a voicemail. All submissions will be passed to the County Bird Recorder. Thank you!
